    Which of you goons are still around from the PBF days?

    Yo yo! Just had my periodic checkin over at PBF and holy crap it's not even recognizable any more! I just wanted to check in with the PBF homies and say that I hope everyone is doing well! I can't believe it has really been 16 years this month since I created that account originally- that's just over half of my life. Wow how times change. I'm about to turn 30! Jeez, it's crazy when I read that. These days I'm living near Breckenridge CO- mountain biking and skiing have replaced paintball, although thankfully the ratio of time spent actually doing them versus talking about them is wayyy better than it was back in the day. I guess that's a side effect of actually having a real job and getting paid decent money haha I haven't picked up a paintball marker in probably a decade at this point, but at some point soon I really want to get a couple homies together to go rent some guns and play again.


    Anyway, hope everybody is doing great. Thanks for the good times!

    -Matt

    Trying to drum up bodies again in the southwest forum, but, glad you'll at least be back to renting. I just turned 33 last month, and I went out and played my first game since 2012 last week. It was...phenomenal. I had forgotten how much fun it was to bring out an old pump and just have a blast.
    I could have sworn I had something important to put here...

      I would really love to get an old pump gun and play in like a 3v3 pump league or something like that, that would be EXACTLY the type of fun I was looking for... Damn. What do pump guns go for these days? hahaha if I ever end up living in a bigger city again, I'm definitely going to make that happen.

    I’d be willing to bet that you go and have a rental day then immediately come back here and buy your own gear. It can’t be helped.

      I remember you!
      There's a few of us kicking around still. I saw labelskate on PBN a few days ago.
      We found Medic too, on Facebook a few years ago; got him into the Fantasy league. That finally ended though; no more PBF fantasy football

      That site DIED. The new site owner didn't care about it; they don't really even care about PBN either, anymore.

        Haha I went on to PBN too that day and laughed about how similar it is. I looked through the News subforum and was honestly disappointed with what I saw as far as the differences between the "cutting edge" of today versus 2010- it looks to me like paintball tech hasn't changed, but boyyyyy the prices sure have. Like I said to autococker above, I really think if I ever play regularly again it'll be with a pump gun. If I end up in a city again I might have to find a pump league to play in, if those exist.

      I was the admin there for a while back in the early days.
      I had the policy of no bashing the newbs. No pyramid schemes, or penny lotteries. etc

      But the other admin kept making all his buddies moderators, despite being teen punks. They would bully the other users, and post wildly inappropriate things.
      So I said "me or them".... they called my bluff, and I walked away.

      Lots of the forums started failing then. Like paintballdojo and paintballreview. PBN was sucking away all the users into a garbage pile of a forum.

      But I did enjoy my time on PBF. It did have the strange policy that you were never allowed to mention any paintball retailer except the one that sponsored the site. For mods and admins, that was a big chunk of the time spent.

        I always wondered why you left.
        I got the raw end of the deal from a lot of them, It makes sense now that you mention this.

        hahaha I had totally forgotten about that policy, that's too funny. I'm not surprised to learn that's what was going on behind the scenes, and to be fair, most of us on that forum were teen punks at that point. What better punishment than making us moderate ourselves haha

      Damn, I was looking at autocockers on ebay for shits and gigs just now and came across a vertebrae autococker- I used to own one of those and probably paid $250 for it... There's one on ebay with a BIN of $1600. Wild.

      That's the only marker that I've owned that I wish I had never gotten rid of. Even before I knew what people were asking for them (not that I expect anyone to pay that amount).

        You missed it, and I missed it, but someone in Erie was selling an autococker that needed a reg and old gear for $50, but someone snagged it before I could. However, I did manage to get something else old today, so.
